Plastic Cards

We invest heavily in R&D and equipment to ensure we produce the highest quality cards available to ISO standards.  We combine both lithographic and digital print technology with the highest quality British inks and Italian plastic to ensure your cards look the business!

Because we actually manufacture the cards ourselves we ensure every card that leaves our factory meets the highest quality standards.  That's why we are trusted by the nation's biggest brands, transport operators and Universities.

With over 130 years of printing experience, here at Buralls we know how to make your brand stand out, thats why we offer a full range of personalisation and finishing services too.


Not only do we produce stunning printed cards to a common design, but our digital print and traditional desktop printing capability means that we can also fully personalise your cards.

Card Bureau & Fulfilment

In addition to card manufacture we also offer a highly flexible card bureau service. From sorting your bulk card delivery into a specific order to help you hand them out, to posting fully personalised cards and letters direct to your card holders, our bureau services are fully tailored to meet your needs.

Digital Print

We use advanced sheet fed Digital Print, Digital Lithographic and Screen technologies to Manufacture cards with very high quality durable edge-to-edge print. Cards can feature enhancements such as HiCo and LoCo magnetic stripes, signature panels, encoding, individual personalisation, holograms and other security features.


We use our advanced digital process to individually personalise cards with photographs and data while in sheet form during manufacture. This enables us to produce very high quality and durable edge to edge personalised print, while overcoming the speed, print quality and consumable cost issues associated with traditional dye-sublimation and re-transfer processes.


Digitally printing cards in sheet form means that the printed layers are placed below the protective outer surface layers during lamination. This gives excellent durability compared to desktop printing.

Contactless Smartcards

We manufacture proximity contactless cards by including an inner core containing chips and antennae during the lamination process. We are able to supply many types of contactless smartcard including MIFARE Classic® and MIFARE® DESFire® EV1 and EV2.

Contact Smartcards

We manufacture contact chip cards using an automated robotic process which mills blank or pre-printed cards and installs a surface contact chip. A variety of chips can be used including EPROM programmable memory chips and microprocessor chips such as JCOP. This process can also be used to chip contactless smartcards creating hybrid cards.

Encoding & Accessories

We can program and encode smartcards to our customers specifications. Burall InfoSmart are one of the few companies to be certified to produce ITSO cards for use with UK transport schemes. All cards can be supplied with accessories such as lanyards, yo-yos, holders and clips.
